Time and Motion Analysis – Decoded by ProHance

Time and Motion studies are meant to help organizations drive continuous improvements in their processes to maximize productivity and efficiency. A time and motion study broadly has the following steps of measurement

  • Each activity is broken down into simple tasks
  • Accurately measure time against each activity
  • Eliminate wastages
  • Design methods to complete each activity faster
  • Tie this up to an incentive scheme or wage scheme to keep the employees motivated
  • Measure improvements and make continuous course corrections

There are many benefits organizations can accrue if time and motion analysis is done right. Some of these are:

  • Performance improvement for the organization irrespective of the type of operations or industry they are in
  • Improvement in resource utilization on the floor, resulting in higher job satisfaction and higher operational efficiency
  • Better workflow processes
